Hofheins shines in Chicago

Tabytha Hofheins's put on a golden display at the Chicago Style Invitational.

Hofheins took gold on vaulting and bronze in the all-around competition in the Level 9 16+ age group.

The Bermuda captain led a squad of ten girls to last weekend's gymnastics competition, which attracts some 4,000 competitors from the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Jezhari Talbot was the youngest member of the squad in Chicago, and produced a display that hints at a bright future for the Bermuda team, with the 11-year-old from Paget Primary scoring an 8.85 on vaulting in the Level 6 category.

In other events, Gianna Webbe turned in an impressive stellar floor exercise routine to finish eighth with a 9.35 at level 7, while Ava Marshall had her highest placement on beam with an 8.725, and Trinity Wilson recorded her high score on vaulting, an 8.75. Anna Francoeur came eighth in the 12-year-old division on balance beam with an 8.45.

Competing alongside Hofheins in the level 9 16+ year old age group, Sydney Mason came fourth on floor with a 9.0, and Gabby Vincent had her highest finish on bars, finishing fifth.

Danielle Wall had her top score of 8.7 on vaulting and Sam Soares earned a pair of 8.05s on vault and beam.

Bermuda's gymnasts will travel to Montreal next month for the Gymnix Invitational.
